A driver of a ute was flown to Tauranga Hospital with moderate injuries after a crash in Whakamarama last night.
A police spokeswoman said a helicopter was called to the crash on Esdaile Rd just before 8 pm on April 16 after a ute crashed into a bank.
She said the person who called 111 thought someone was trapped inside their vehicle but the injured driver was sitting in the ute when the rescue helicopter arrived on the scene.
The patient suffered moderate injuries, the police spokeswoman said.
